State of the Union
So… I just finished reading the state of the union address. I’m about two paragraphs into the rebuttal by Nancy Pelosi… when I read the following paragraphs: “Never before have we been more powerful militarily. But even the most powerful nation in the history of the world must bring other nations to our side to meet common dangers.
The president’s policies do not reflect that. He has pursued a go-it-alone foreign policy that leaves us isolated abroad and that steals resources we need for education and health care here at home.”
Excuse me? Go it alone foreign policy? Bush has asked for foreign aid from the start. And what are Australia, Britain, Norway, Spain, Italy and others exactly if not foreign?
This rebuttal is weak and makes the democrats look like idiots. No wonder Bush is looking so good in the opinion polls. Oh… and one more thing Nancy: In order to understand light, you have to first know what darkness is. In America, we have seen darkness, we have weathered it bravely. We are trying to bring Iraq and Afghanistan out of the darkness and into the light. We are a beacon of freedom and democracy, and we have done it by being a missile.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” So says Sun Tzu. His wisdom has been passed on for two and a half thousand years. It seems like you’ve never read it, because you fear war, even though we know ourselves and what we are capable of, and we know our enemy equally as well.
I’m not afraid of war. I am afraid of people like you. People who are unwilling to put foot to ass and show the world what we are made of. I want a person of action in the office of the president. I want someone who will make use of our strengths to defend our weaknesses.
That’s what everyone really wants at the end of the day. A little darkness… so we can let the light back in.
